Speaking of the show’s foreshadowing and recalls, Nikolaj said:

“One of the great things about this show is that there are a lot of — also in season 8 — moments where you go “Oooooh, I remember that in [reaching for random example] season 2, Episode 3, that happened…[Jaime had] the tiniest of moments with Jon Snow in Episode 1…[Jaime] said, “Good luck at the Wall, we need great men like you.” And always, me and Kit Harington spoke about it; surely at one point we’re gonna meet again. There must be some payoff. And now, at least, [Jaime’s] going north. So he’s trying to get up there. We’ll see if he makes it. You never know.”

Speaking of Jaime’s relationship with Cersei, and him finally walking out on her, Nikolaj said:

“It goes back to the first thing he says in Episode 1, ‘The things I do for love,’ which was about how his whole life has been about his sister. He’s lived his life on his sister’s terms if you will. And I think the end of last season was kind of a very, very big moment because for the first time he knowingly acted against Cersei’s wishes, and he also for a moment saw her, I guess in a way, like the rest of the world has seen her for some time.

Part of what’s heartbreaking in the end is that she’s playing him. I think there is a little part of her that wants to embrace the romance.”

Speaking of the future prospects of Jaime’s love life, Nikolaj revealed that he’s a part of a large sect of the fanbase that wants Jaime to end up with Brienne of Tarth:

“I think that I’m more of a romantic than [showrunners] Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff]. I kind of want [Jaime] to just break out. You know, just leave Cersei! And she’s bad for you! And it’s not healthy! And clearly you’re in a relationship where you are more in love with her than she loves you, so, you know. And what about Brienne of Tarth? She’s great! I’m no different than anyone else. I’m a hopeless romantic.”

In the end, he teased Season 8 with only three words:

“Surprising. Enormous. Heartbreaking.”
